Friends and colleagues of Lily Powis are collecting donations to dedicate a campus bench in memory of the UWindsor staff member, who died September 1.
The commemorative bench will serve as a permanent tribute, with a plaque acknowledging her contributions to the University and its students.
Powis joined the UWindsor permanent staff in 2006 as administrative records clerk in the Office of Development and Alumni Affairs, after holding a contract position in Public Affairs and Communications. She transferred to the position of receptionist in the Faculty of Nursing in September 2017.
The cost to designate a bench is $1,500. To contribute, specify “Lily Powis” on the online pledge form www.uwindsor.ca/donations or contact Fedela Falkner at email@example.com or 519-253-3000, ext. 4141.
